Sunday Selfies

You know who hasn't gotten to share a selfie here in a while?

This girl. Pup Astrid hopes all of you kitty friends of ours don't mind seeing her mutty self today instead of one of the kitties. If it helps you decide, she sure does love kitties and would love to be friends with all of you kitties out there.

Seriously, this girl is all shades of terrified of dogs. Kitties, though, she loves her some kitties.

Oh, and don't let these pictures fool you. Our yard is all covered in that white stuff again now. Happy Spring, eh?

Pup Astrid snapped these shots for none other than the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the fabulous Kitties Blue of The Cat on My Head.

Happy Sunday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:

As part of National Pet Poison Awareness Month, we're now talking about the risk of poisonous bites your kitty or pup might receive from other critters. Depending on where you live, or where you might be visiting with your furbaby, you might find it necessary to be on the lookout for critters such as snakes and spiders whose bites can have toxic effects. When it comes to snakes, some of the dangerous ones include certain coral snakes and rattlesnakes. As for spiders, as most of you certainly know, black widows and brown recluses are amongst the most dangerous. Bites from such critters can result in any number of dangerous or life-threatening side effects, including cardiovascular shock, respiratory distress, neurological damage, and tissue damage, among others.

When outdoors, especially in areas where snakes, spiders, or other venomous critters are known, always monitor your furbaby and keep an eye out for danger. As needed, research the wildlife of areas you will be, so that you know what snakes, spiders, and other critters of which to be cautious. Of course, if your kitty or pup is bitten by a spider or snake, especially a known venomous one, do not hesitate to seek veterinary care. In many such cases, counteracting the venom in a timely manner is crucial.

I visited England to say goodbye to my Mum and we had snow. I had not seen it in ages!

Have a good Sunday

Yikes, more snow, that really spoils the fun. Aww, Astrid is such a dear, I bet it must be her size that puts others off before they have a chance to se her inner charm and loving heart.... She has a lovely selfie, maybe she could go dating?

We always enjoy seeing Astrid! Looking good there, girl! And we hope that snow goes away. Fortunately, that stuff missed us.

Hi Astrid that's a very sweet picture of you. In our lives we have seen more dogs get along with cats than cats get along with cats! Sweet picture and doodle. We hope you'll come visit us for our 3rd blogoversary today!

Hi Astrid! I would be proud to be your kitty friend. Count me in. As for Spring - we're not sure where it is either but one positive step is they had predicted snow for us yesterday and it didn't happen! Maybe Spring scared it away?!

Hugs, Teddy

It's still winter here too. I'm hoping that will change next week.

Astrid it's time for us to see your selfies. Yes indeed.

I love your doodle of the day too. Cute.

Have a fabulous day. ♥

Dakota LOVES seeing Astrid! He isn't a fan of MANY dogs, the only dog Dakota met that he REALLY likes is his cousin Punky. She is little and about the same age as him and they ignore each other which he LOVES! Happy Sunday!

Astrid is a sweetie. Very cute drawing. And excellent tip, I am glad I live in a colder area so we don't have any spiders or snakes that are deadly.

Astrid, we have wee little patches of snow hiding in the corners, but are so over winter now too!

Snow! Shiver! We have cold weather this weekend, but no snow at our house...though across the river and up the hill they had flakes! And Astrid, I do like to look at dogs. I am actually starting to like my hairy slobber sister Cinnamon (who will be back visiting for Easter!)

We're always happy to see you, Astrid! We didn't get new white stuff this time around, but we still have last week's white stuff hanging around :)

Once again, we have gotten very behind with comments. Pease forgive us. We already thought we and Astrid were friends. How can we not be. She is such a sweetie. Hope your snow melts soon. Our latest snow melted most of the way today. Thanks for hopping with us each week.
